ABILENE, Texas -

National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 15-19.

Four of every five victims in work zone crashes are motorists, according to the United States Department of Transportation. 

TxDOT officials urge drivers to be safe and alert while driving through construction zones. Traffic fines double when workers are present.
